By on Email


Just a couple of hours ago, HMD Global announced its first, Nokia 6 Android smartphone and now we have some hands-on images of the smartphone right here. The phone looks stunning in its metal casing and curved glass up front. Have a look at some of the Nokia 6 hands-on images below from all sides.

First, let's start with the box, we have already seen the back of the box but now you can also see the front which just says Nokia with an image of the phone, while on the left you can see the Nokia 6 branding. We have already seen the specs of the phone, Snapdragon 430, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which is expandable. Read More: Nokia 6 Full Specs and Image Gallery


In the front, there's the 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display covered in 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass. At the top of the screen you can see the Nokia logo, and the 8-megapixel front camera as well. Below it are two capacitive buttons for back and recent apps, and in between is the home button which doubles up as the fingerprint sensor. It seems like a capacitive button similar to the OnePlus 3.


At the top of the phone, you can see the 3.5mm headphone jack and another antenna band for signal reception. The flat sides of the phone with chamfered edges do add a bit of design flair.


The curved glass on top of the display juts out a little bit in the front. Now coming to the bottom of the phone you can see the speaker, which doubles up with the front earpiece for dual stereo sound with Dolby Atmos support for surround sound.


On the left of the phone, there is the dual-SIM card slot and it is expected to be in a hybrid configuration with the second SIM slot doubling up as a microSD slot. Moving to the back of the phone, there's the 16-megapixel camera with dual-tone LED flash and Nokia branding.


The back has a matte metal finish and the antenna bands are pushed to the top and bottom like the iPhone 7. You can also see the secondary noise-cancellation microphone right there and under the hood, is a 3000 mAh battery.


The volume rocker and power button are on the right, made of metal. The chamfer continues on all sides. The back of the Nokia 6 does curve slightly and at 7.8mm it's not a very chunky phone either. The top and bottom display bezels do seem a bit large especially the bottom chin which houses the fingerprint sensor.


Coming to software, the Nokia 6 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box but with a custom launcher. You can also see the stock Nougat multi-tasking UI and if we go into settings it shows the model number TA-1000 which recently received certification at China's 3C.


For now, the Nokia 6 is a China exclusive priced at around $245 (Rs. 16700) and will be available in the coming months. We probably will see a few more smartphones from HMD Global at MWC 2017.
